genus offers the gardener
to chose from; however many of the
larger species are only suitable for the very
large rock garden.
species may seed around, and on a recent
visit to a friend's garden
that contained a major collection, I was
told me that the removal of
annually self -sown geranium seedlings
was a major problem to contend with.
farreri will never cause you any such problems,
indeed if I ever find any self - sown seedlings
I count myself most fortunate.
diminutive Geranium hails from very high
altitudes in China but adopts to our lowland
gardens very well. The type plant is very neat
and clump forming, usually
no more than
10 to 15 cm in height.
